Pictures of your bike(s)

Any takers for this suggestion?
I don't know about you, but pictures of cycles and cycling inspire me no end, and believe me, after the year I've had, I need inspiring!

The commuter - although it now sports race bades, more lights and a few other tweaks.

The Sunday Morning bike - but I'm alway busy on a Sunday Morning!

Yer she is - Hyacinth - cheap and cheerful but she got me down from nineteen and a half stone to fourteen and a half so I'm very fond of her.
Soon to share her shed with a Dawes but don't tell her as she will be upset.

Pity it's not 'Made in the UK'

This is me by our garage door in the late 1950s. The bike you can see on the
left was my sister's, but she didn't ride it much. It was the first two-wheeler I rode!

It was a Phillips, navy-blue with cream mudguards.

(The car, on the other hand, was a two-tone black and grey Ford Anglia)

I'm not impressed with The Forum's image manipulation system.

The pics are of Bike on the LEJOGLE trip last July.
Mercian Vincitore 1986, with Campag Mirage kit,
Brooks Team Pro saddle,
Mavic MA3 rims, shod with Vittoria Rubino Pro's.
Trailer is a Carry Freedom Y Frame with a suitcase strapped on!

Guess where!

On the way South over Drumochter Pass just off the A9

There was a dog barking the other side of the hedge.
The owner didn't know there was a mad E2E2E cyclist on the other side!

Hi R2 - I have done about 800 miles now and think the Rohloff is excellent.
I find it much better on the hills than my old Dawes Galaxy (which I have toured with for years)
Much easier to change gear - so I change gear at the right time and the gear are evenly spaced - the range is exactly right for me - and I really like the ability to change gear whilst stationary. If I have to stop on a hill can choose which gear to start in again and I no longer have to think - if I change up on the front I'll have to change down on the rear.
I also feel that it is more robust whilst travelling. No dangling bits to get damaged.
Sorry if this sounds like an ad for Rohloff - but so far I cant fault it.

Here are the pictures of my two most frequently used bikes.
The blue one is a custom made Bob Jackson, used for long day rides and touring.
The black bike is my winter hack/commuter/tourer. It is basically a 1960s Carlton with a Sturmey 3 speed hub, Mafac brakes and Stronglight chainset. It also sports a Brooks B17 saddle and old Carradice saddlebag.
